The Name Game


Humans love naming things — look around you, and I bet you’ll see dozens of names. This week, take a photo of one!


Played this song and game a lot as a kid!

      1. One day I hope to live in Harlem. My Dad and all my paternal Aunts grew up there. It was the birthplace of the Harlem Renaissance and is one of the many important places of Black History.

      2. No. Not anymore. Luxury housing is being built and Gentrification has taken over. Once the Hipsters arrive the other residents get pushed out. Very few people have millions of dollars to purchase a Brownstone. The neighborhood has changed since the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.

      3. Wow! I did not know! I drove through Harlem with a guided tour in 1985. Definitely huge changes to tell from your words. Sounds like a fantastic resurrection.

      4. It is a combination of good and bad. As the neighborhood improves people who have lived there for decades are pushed out. That includes the Mom & Pop stores. You can’t compete with the GAP and other big chain stores. Also once affordable housing has more or less disappeared so all these changes will not benefit the working class, working poor or the poor. As always those of us in those categories and that includes me will be pushed to the periphery. Always on the outside looking in. Never able to join the feast.

      5. That is sadly true! Commerce has it and money talks so much louder than people. Also it is a shame that little unique stores disappear and get overrun from what we already know!
